Growing Into A Better Tango Dancer
Tango is a beautiful and mesmerizing dance, and spending even just a short time in Buenos Aires makes it hard not to fall in love with its hypnotizing rhythm. It’s natural to want to try your hand at the tango for yourself, but you’ll quickly see just the kind of skill and discipline dancing the tango requires. Few are great at tango right away, and it takes building these skills to really grow into a better tango dancer.
Growing into a better tango dancer should be a fun and challenging experience, and you should see the fruits of your labor in your progression in your dance.
How Can I Become A Better Tango Dancer?
There are a number of things you can do to grow into a better tango dancer. This process of growth will involve:
- Loving the dance – The first and most important part of growth in tango is your love for the dance. If you don’t love what you’re doing, and if you don’t love tango as a whole, it’s going to show each time you step onto the dance floor. When tango gets challenging, embrace all of the points you love and focus on those as you master these new techniques.
- Find your genuine form of the dance – Like with anything else, there are trends or fads that come in up in tango. True tango artists know the rules and the technique of the dance, and they use these classic elements to interpret the dance as their own. It’s no use overworking yourself trying to master the trends in fashion when you can do so much with the classic elements that already exist.
- Always practice – Like any other discipline you find it life, practice with the tango will make perfect. The biggest thing you can do to grow and develop your tango skill, aside from loving the dance, is practice it. Whenever you have free time, practice your steps and your techniques. Very soon you’ll begin seeing real growth in your tango abilities.
- Enjoy every moment – There will be moments in tango when you might feel like you’re making a fool of yourself; after all, learning something new is rarely easy, and you’re going to slip up along the way. Take these moments and laugh with everyone else, and let them remind you what you love about the tango in the first place. When you enjoy and embrace every moment, you open yourself to all you need to become a better dancer in the long run.
Embracing The Culture And The Love Of Tango
As you better your tango skills and grow into the dancer you know you can be, you’ll be fully immersed in the culture of tango as a whole. It becomes less of a dance and more a way to communicate or tell a story, and very soon you’ll find yourself telling your own stories through the power of the dance.
